The Armed Republic of Targow is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed population of 459 million Targowians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solinburg City. The average income tax rate is 34.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Targowian economy, worth 54.1 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 117,932 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
People's charity begins and ends at home, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Targow's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
